Extracts from Letters received— 

Lieut. -Colonel Robert Maunsell, Fanstown, Kilmallock, and 78 George Street, 
Limerick, says — 

"As present representative of tlie Irish Brancli of the Maunsells, I write to say how 
much pleased I am with your interesting and beautifully got up book. The pictures 
of the different places add much to the interest of it." 

General Sir F. R. Maunsell, K.C.B., 32 Ashley Gardens, London, S.W., says— 

" I must corgratulate you and the family on this excellent and interesting work, and 
I think all the family owe IVIr. Maunsell thanks for the pains he took. It must have 
been a pretty severe task." 

Major-General Thomas Maunsell, C.B., Ballywilliam, Co. Limerick, and Burghclerei 
Co. Berks., says — 

" Having waited to look over the book, kindly inform Mr. Maunsell that I am very much 
pleased with his work. It has been well turned out and completed by your firm." 

Rev. C. H. Maunsell, Thorpe Malsor Hall, says — 

" I received my copies of the book safely, and am much pleased with it, and think the 
illustrations very good. I hope it will have a good sale, and I think all members 
of the family may well feel exxeedingly obliged to Mr. Maunsell for compiling such 
a valuable work." 

Lieut.-Colonel F. R. Maunsell, R.A., Military Attache, Constantinople, says— 
" It is extremely well got up and printed." 

Lieut.-Colonel George J. Maunsell, of Torquay, says — 

" I congratulate you and Mr. Maunsell on the highly creditable manner in which it 
has been compiled and printed." 

Colonel C. A. Maunsell, of Poyle Hill, Tongham, says — 

"Kindly express my thanks to Mr. Maunsell for the great care and trouble he has 
taken in collecting all this most interesting matter. I think the entire family owe 
him a deep debt of gratitude." 

W. Pryce Maunsell, Esq., B.A., Barrister at-Law, Fairyfield, Kilmallock, and 
5 Martello Terrace, Kingstown, says — 

"This History of the Maunsell Family, from the Conquest down to the present times, 
has been admirably compiled, and the various English, Welsh, and Irish branches 
welded into one harmonious whole. The manner in which the relationship is 
shown among its members, more especially those eminent in politics, war, or 
literature, such as the Chancellor in Henry III.'s reign, the celebrated General 
who was the first to capture cannon with cavalry, his distinguished descendant, 
the Dean of St. Paul's, and my own immediate ancestor who defended MocoUop 
Castle against the army of Oliver Cromwell, is highly creditable. Mr. Maunsell 
deserves the thanks of all the family for the admirable way in which he has 
accomplished his work." 

Colonel W. D. Dickson, J.P., of Kildimo, Co. Limerick, and Bournemouth, says — 

" The book is well got up, and contains a great amount of information about the 
Maunsell Family and their alliances. It certainly does you much credit to have 
undertaken such a troublesome task." 

Rev. F. W. Maunsell, Rector of Symondsbury, Dorset, says — 

" I congratulate Mr. Maunsell on his extremely interesting and exhaustive family 
history. I have received two copies to-day, please send me two more copies." 

G. E. CoKAYNE, Esq., M.A., F.S.A., Clarenceux King of Arms, says — 

" I am indeed highly delighted with the book ; the illustrations are beyond praise." 

Sir Arthur Vic.4rs, K.C.V.O., F.S.A., Ulster King of Arms, says — 

" I consider you deserve the greatest credit for the energy you have displayed in 
gathering together the hitherto disjointed pedigree ol the Maunsell Family. A 
collective genealogical account of this family m all its numerous branches was 
much required, and your efforts will be of great use to genealogists at large. 

" To bring together such a mass of information and data, entails enormous 
labour, and if the IVIaunsell family appreciate their ancestry, a second edition will 
surely be required. 

"The printing is good, and the illustrations well chosen." 

Sir Edmund T. Bewlev, LL.D,, F. R.S.I A., 40 Fitzwilliani Place, Dublin, says — 

" I have duly received the IVIaunsell Family History, the typography and illustrations 
of which do great credit to your firm. As for the numerous and interesting 
pedigrees contained in it, only those who have been engaged in a similar under- 
taking can properly appreciate the vast labour and research involved ; and from 
such examination as 1 have been able to make of the pedigrees up to the present, 
Mr. Maunsells' work appears to me to show great care and accuracy." 

Mrs. H. Maunsell, of 7 South Street, Thurloe Square, London, S.W., says— 
" I think the book is most interesting and beautifully got up. The engravings of the 
different places make it quite difierent to the books of the kind that have been 
brought out before.'' 

Mrs. R, Eyre Maunskll, of Moorlands, Treen, Cornwall, says — 

" I have received the books safely, and am very pleased with them. The history is 
most interesting, and must have entailed much labour on the compiler." 

Edward Longueville Mansel, Esq., M.D., 7 Clements Inn, London, says — 

" I have received my copy of Mr. Maunsell's most interesting book, and am very pleased 
with it. The printing and engravings are excellent." 

Colonel E. S. Maunsell, New Orleans, says — 

"Your very interesting book to hand, for which please accept thanks." 

J. LuKis Mansell, Esq., 2 Somerset Place, Guernsey, says — 

" I have received my copy, and am much pleased with it. As I am the oldest member 
of the Guernsey branch, I beg to thank Mr. Maunsell for the records of the family 
in his book." 

Lieut.-Colonel T. W. Mansell de Gu£rin, of Le Mont Durant, Guernsey, says — 

" Many thanks for your most interesting book on the Mansell family. Your work con- 
tains an amount of information on the Mansell family which is new to me, and is 
a very valuable record." 

H. G. ToLER Hope, Esq., 119 Elms Road, Clapham Park, London, S.V/., says — 

" In acknowledging the receipt of, and in thanking you for sending me, a copy of Mr. 
Maunsell's History of his grand old family, I wish at the same time to say that the 
manner in which you have placed it before the world is most praiseworthy. The 
printing is exceptionally good, and the binding appropriate in the extreme." 

J. T, Warren White, Esq., of Bedford, says — 

" 1 cannot tell you how very greatly I am pleased with the book, and admire it. There 
is nothing in it to indicate the hand of an amateur. The book is a very great 
achievement, the more I look into it the more I admire it." 

Colonel C. H. B. Nurcott, C.M.G., Brookfield House, Oakham, says — 

" The book is well got up in every way, and does you great credit. There is evidence 
of much hard work and research on Mr. Maunsell's part, the records bringing to 
light many important and interesting facts." 

W. Mansell- MacCulloch, Esq., M.D., F.G.S., Les Touillets, Guernsey, says — 

" I must take this opportunity of letting you know how much I am interested in the 
undertaking you have so successfully carried out. I do think that work such as is 
entailed by the collecting together of so many varied materials is deserving of all

Maunsell, or Mansel, 



Cbc name, its Origin and Ortbograpliy. 

HE name Maunsell, with its variants Maunchell and Maunchenell, 

would seem to have been derived from, or may have given 

designation to, the district or province of La Manche, in 

Normandy. That district, in shape, is like a badly made 

sleeve, and in the Maunsell Coat of Arms are three sleeves 

or maunches " mal-taillees." The old French for sleeve was 

mancele, the modern French being manche. 

Some writers give the origin as being from Le Mans (quasi Mans-el), the 

chief town of Maine, but the forms " Mansois " and " Manxois " alone are found 

in this connection, whilst the term "Manseau" was used to designate "a man 

from Maine." 

The " Dictionnaire Universel de Trevoux," says, sub voce Manseau : " Qui 
est du Maine, habitant du Maine." Wace, in his "Chronicles of the Conquest" 
(Roman de Rou), says : " Then the Duke called in his good neighbours the Britons, 
Mansels, and Angevins, and those of Pontif and Boloigne, to come with him in his 
need." The family was evidently numerous and of widespread influence in France, 
but it does not follow that all who assumed the surname belonged to the same stock, 
since in early times a man was known by his Christian name, and his father's 
Christian name, together with the name of his property, and, if a stranger, by 
the name of the country or province from whence he came. Saint Allais, in his 
" Dictionnaire de la Noblesse," says : " Le Maunsel — an ancient family, originally 
of Normandy." 

Near St. Peter's Port, in the Island of Guernsey, is a district called Contree 
Manscll. In La Manche is a place called La Manseliere, formerly a prebendal 
stall to the Cathedral of Coutances. In Brittany, between Dol and Baguer, 
Department of Ille et Vilaine, is also a place so designated, and some of the 


family appear to continue there, for a Monsieur Mancel was Mayor of Dol, 
1829-30. Further south, there is a town called Manciel, in Department of 
Gers, and in Charente there is another town called Maunsle. 

The present French Branch of the family spell the name Mancel, but some- 
times Manssel and Mansois. 

In the Battle Abbey Roll some of the chiefs or knights of this family appear 
as Le Siegneur de Mauneville, Le Sieg. de Maunceaux de la Maunse, and 
Maunchenelle. The Anglo-Norman spelling was undoubtedly with the u and 11, 
oi which most of the copies of the Battle Abbey Roll, Matthew Paris, Vincent, 
and other writers, give proof. In all the Papal Bulls, and other public docu- 
ments, addressed to Jolm Maunsell, temp. Hen. III., the surname is invariably 
so spelt. About this period the name was sometimes written with t, or at least 
the written form of s was such as to be easily mistaken for that letter, thus 
Robert Maunsell who founded the Abbey of Bileagh, near Maiden, Essex, in 
1 1 80, and his son, Robert, who was sheriff of Essex 2nd Hen. III., and of 
Leicester 31 Hen. III., in the Close Rolls have the name written Mauntell, 
whilst in the Plea Rolls and " Inquisitiones Post Mortem" it is spelt Maunsell. 
Again, the name of Walter Maunsell, who held the Manor of Missenden, Co. 
Bucks, in the beginning of the reign of Hen. III. has sometimes been written 
with a t, but in the "Inquisitiones Post Mortem," Charter Rolls, Parhamentary 
Writs, etc., it is invariably spelt with s ; but in the Close Rolls it is once written 

Until about the fifteenth century the seal attached to any document acted 
as the signature of later times, and it is therefore difficult to authenticate the 
earlier writings. A seal, presumably that of John Maunsell, temp. Hen. III., 
was found under the foundation of London Bridge, but the engraving on it gives 
the name as Maunsel, whilst another seal found in 1849, near the Reculvers, 

when excavating for the Dover Railway, gives the name "Thome Maunsell." 
This latter seal is said to be of the period Henry VI. In 1450, Thomas Maunsell 
was Receiver-General to the Duke of Somerset, the King's Lieutenant-General 
in France, and " had money to pay the wages of divers men at arms and archers 


proceeding to Normandy for defence of those parts." The name continued to 
be thus sealed or written by the family until the latter end of the fifteenth 
century, when Philip Maunsell is stated to have omitted the u, probably as not 
being pronounced, as we see in so many words of French origin. His descend- 
ants — Sir Rhys Mansell, who died in April, 1559, rarely used the u, but retained 
the 11, sometimes writing the name Manysell and Manxell. Richard Maunsell 
of Claicheley, Newport-Pagnell, also died in 1559, and the entry of his burial 
in the church there appears as Mansell. In the Visitations of the period the 
name of the latter's grandson, John, appears in the same form ; but in the tablet 
erected to his memory in the chancel arch of Bromley Church, 1625, it is spelt 
Maunsell. The descendants of this John's brother, Thomas, who settled in 
Ireland, maintain the latter original spelling, although Thomas Maunsell, of 
Mocollop Castle, in 1661, signed an admn. bond without the u; yet his own 
will, in 1687, is signed with that letter. Again, in 1713, two brothers in signing 
a marriage licence bond, one wrote the name in the former fashion and the other 
in the latter. Sir Robert Mansell, Vice-Admiral of England, temp. Queen 
Elizabeth and James I., sometimes, in early life, spelt his name as Mansfeeld. 
The earliest funeral certificate of the family in the College of Arms is that of 
Sir Thomas Mansell, the first baronet, who died 163 1, and is signed by his 
son, Sir Lewis Mansell. The latter died 1638, and his funeral certificate is 
signed by his widow, Lady Elizabeth Mansell. No other alteration occurred 
in the spelling of the name until the reign of Queen Anne, when Sir Thos. 
Mansell, Bart., previous to his elevation to the peerage, omitted the final 1, and 
some of the Carmarthenshire branches, and that of Cosgrove Hall, Northants, 
a Junior branch of the Maunsells of Chicheley, have followed Iris example. An 
instance of the fonn Maunchell is to be found in the will of Rev. Thomas 
Maunchell, Rector of Overe, Co. Cambridge, proved 1467.

OATS OF ARMS, or Armorial bearings, are of very remote 
origin. Ttiey were composed of tinctures and figures borne 
on a shield and granted by Sovereigns and others to dis- 
tinguish persons, and families, or states, and were usually 
conferred for exceptional valor, or other such signal service. 
Hereditary arms began to be displayed in this country 
only towards the middle of the twelfth century. The 
feudal system, the times of chivalry, and the Crusades appear to have been 
principally the cause and the period of their being adopted throughout Europe, 
whilst the privilege of bearing them was jealously guarded. The inferior 
classes of society were totally excluded from such characteristics of dignity. At 
tournaments no one could enter the lists without producing his armorial bearings, 
and proving his gentility by several descents, and no branch of a family could 
assume the arms of its chief, without displaying suitable differences. 

Arms once established in a family, may be borne by all the members of it, 
with proper distinctions, such as the label, mullet, etc. A change in the tincture 
is also another mark of cadency, and may in some degree account for the many 
different ways in which Maunsell arms are found emblazoned. The Maunsells 
of Gloucestershire bore Gules, a fesse, argent; and, as early as the beginning 
of the fifteenth century we find it thus displayed, with a label of the second, for 
difference, by Sir Wm. Maunsell of that county, at the battle of Agincourt, and 
the siege of Rouen under Henry V. Sir Robert Mansell, temp. Queen Elizabeth, 
and some other branches, bore — Or, three Maunches Sable, on a chief, gules, 
a lion passant, gardant of the field. The chief and its charge were granted 
by the Earl of Essex, in consequence of the gallant conduct displayed, by Sir 
Robert at the siege of Cadiz in 1596, when he also knighted him. The Maunsells 
of Ballybrood transpose the arms, and bear — Sa, ; a chevron between three 
Maunches, argent. Mansells of Dorsetshire — Sa, a chevron between three 
Mullets, argent. Others bore — Sable, a chevron between three mullets pierced, 
or. Again — Or, on a fesse, dansette gules, three lions rampant, argent. Also — 
Sable, a chevron between three Maunches, argent. Thomas Mansell, of Wood 
Street, London, 1633-4, bore — Or, on a fesse, indented, gules, three lions 
rampant, argent ; and John Maunsell, of Tirlington, Leicestershire, temp. Ed. II., 
bore — Gules, a fesse, argent, a label, or. The Maunsells of Somersetshire, in 
1573, bore — Gules, a fesse or, between three jambes, argent. Some of Uie 


Mansells of France, now spelt Mancel, bore, — Vert, three mullets, argent, 2 and 
r, within a border, sable. Jean le Mancel, lord of Sequeville, bore — Sa, a fesse, 
or, between six escalops, or, 3 and 3. Mansel, lord of La Laude, near Caen, 
bore arms exactly similar to the main branch in England, viz., "d'argent, au 
chevron de sable, accompagne de trois manches, mal-taillees, du meme." Others 
bore — Azure, Seme of Mullets, or, three bunches of grapes, or, 2 and i. Whilst 
in-Narburgh Church, Norfolk, the arms quartered for Maunsell were — Azure, 
Seme of Cross Crosslets, and three Crescents argent. In the samie church they 
also appeared quartered in the Sixth in the Spelman Arms (see page 9). 

The original arms of Maunsell are — Argent, a chevron, between three 
Maunches, sable. Their composition, according to the laws of heraldry, is far 
from being insignificant, for it is an acknowledged rule, that armorial bearings 
which are the simplest and least diversified, are the most noble and ancient. 
A field argent, as representing the light, is the most distinguished ; and the 
chevron is the seventh honorable ordinary, the principal charges in heraldry, and 
represents two rafters, denoting an established house. It was given to those 
who had accomplished any great undertaking, or performed some signal service. 
The Maunche represents an ecclesiastic's sleeve, and is perhaps a rebus on the 
rame, being " Maunchelle," a little sleeve. The Maunche is of the greatest 
antiquity, and is to be found only in the arms of those who have descended from 
a long line of ancestry. Only two families in this country, besides the Maunsells, 
bear the Maunche Sable, namely, Hastings and Coniers. The Maunche in 
different other colours is displayed by the families of De la Mare, Fleming, 
Staverton, PagneJl, Framville, Frevell, Wharton, Hayford, Colthorpe, Thirkell, 
Crosby, Mohun, Manly, Bouler, Acklam, Norton, Acham, and Bordsay. By the 
seal of John Maunsell, temp. Hen. III., it appears that he bore — Ermine, on a 
cross, five lions passant gardant, but these may have had reference tj liis civil, 
courtly, or ecclesiastical appointments. 


Coats of Arms with Supporters is the prerogative of the " Nobiles Majores," 
and was granted to the five gradations by Henry VIII. Knights of the several 
orders also bear them, as do also Nova Scotia Baronets, although those of 
England and Ireland are not entitled to that privilege. Several private families 
display supporters, being entitled to do so by the express permission of the 

Supporters, which cannot with propriety be changed or alienated, are 
generally taken from such things as are borne on the shield ; they have also 
been adopted, or first granted, on account of some particular action. 

The Supporters used by the Lords Mansel — A Hawk and Griffin, were first 
assumed by Sir Thomas Mansell, Bart, on his elevation to the House of Lords, 
temp. Queen Anne, and were taken from his crest. 

The Supportrrs of the Mansells of France are two Parrots.

" Quod Vult Valde Vult." As to its origin, it appears probable that John 
Maunsell, when he was crossed for the Holy Land, temp. Henry III., followed 
the fashion of the day and took a motto, and that the King, hearing of his 
favourite minister's intention of joining the Crusade, may have appropriately 
repeated the words Julius Caesar made use of when speaking to Brutus, " Nescio 
quod vult ; sed quicquid vult, valde vult," and thus have given rise to the 
Maunsell motto. It may also be in allusion to the crest. The Lords Mansel 
of Margam bore another motto, namely, " Honorantes me Honorabo," which 
is also borne by the Irish and Northamptonshire branches of the family. 

At tournaments Sir Jenkin Mansell used the motto, "Perit sine adversario

Philip Maunsell. Amongst the MSS. preserved in the Royal Library at 
Paris is a book entitled, "Armoires de Genealogie de la Famille de Mancel," 
which commences thus, "Adinoffe, grand Chambellan de Guillaume, eut 
pour petit his, ou pour nepheu Phillippe." Tlris Philip was cup-bearer to 
the Conqueror, and accompanied him to England. He was nephew of 
Sir Henry de Herle, and settling in County Bucks, married Demoiselle, 
daughter of Hugh de Montsorrel, of Leicestershire, with whom he got large 
estates in tliat county. He had five sons, viz., Henry, Philip, Robert, 
Michael, and Andrew. 

Henry Maunsell, married Emma, sister of Sir Richard de Lucy, Chief Justice 
of the Reahn, who, in 1178, founded tlie abbey of Westwude, or Liesne 
(Erith Abbey), and was buried there the following year. Henry's eldest 
son, viz. : 

John Maunsell, married Elaine, daughter of — de Lutterell, Baron of Irnham, 
Co. Lincoln, and had a son, viz : 

Raffe Maunsell, who married Cecily, daughter of that Gervaise Pagnell, 
Baron of Dudley, who, in 11 38, held the castle of Dudley for the Empress 
Maud, and from whom Maunsell got a fee of the new feoffment of Gervaise 
Pagnell, and held it, as per state records, in 1 167. Cecily was grand- 
daughter of Fulk Pagnell, Baron of Dudley, by the daughter and sole heir 
of Wm. Fitzasculph, who founded the monastery near Newport-Pagnell, 
called Tickford, and gave thereto the church of Newport, with its appur- 
tenances, together with the churches and "lordships of Bradwell, Willen, 
and Chichele, the mill at Caldecote, and half a yard of land with the 
meadow which belongs to the mill, and some property in Northampton, to 
which his son, Gervaise, subsequently added the church at Aston, juxta 
Birmingham. Maunsell, with consent of his wife, and of his son and heir, 
for the souls of his father and mother, and of his sons, Gilbert, Roger, Simon, 
William, and Hugh, gave his land " Cuculmes ho " to Tickford Priory 
This grant was made in presence of, and confirmed by Gervaise Pagnell, 
for the general confirmatory charter from Gervaise Pagnell to the priory 


includes all the mere, and lands, meadows, and pastures, and woods, liber- 
ties and ways, of the gift of Ralph Maunsell, and Cecily, his wife. . 
His eldest and only surviving son and heir, viz. : 

Syr Robert Maunsell, Knt.-Banneret, with Gilbert de Lacy, in 1163. 
attacked and defeated Nouradin, the Sultan, at La Bochen, near Tripoh 
On his return from the war, he married (Joice) one of the three daughters 
and co-heiresses of Wm. de Alneto, or Dawney, Lord of Turvey, by Joice, 
dau. of — D'Engain. Her eldest sister married Eustace le Mordaunt. 
ancestor of the Earls of Peterboro' ; and the second married Richard de 
Andres. Maunsell, with other estates, held also the Manor of Sedgway, 
Co. Sussex, in capite of the King. He had issue, viz. : 

I. Walter, of whom afterwards. 

II. Robert, held lands Sancketon and Terlington, Co. Leic, but, in 12 16 

having joined the Barons against the King, these lands were forfeited 
and given to Hugh de Luterinton. On accession of Henry III, he 
had restoration or livery of his lands in counties Leic, Beds., and Essex, 
and was nominated one of the twelve knights for the afforesting of 
Co. Leicester in 1227. He also held the lands of Pateshul, Co. Stafford, 
20 Henry III. ; and in this year he and his wife had law proceedings 
against Wm. Extraneum about a watercourse at Sancketon. He 
married Mabilia, dau. of — de Saunderville, of Teignworth, Leic, and 
had issue, viz. : 

(i) Umphry, held lands Kynwardsbeg, Co. Devon, and married Sibilla, 
who survived him, and, in 1254, obtained from her father-m-law 
in dower the lands of Ellesburn, Co. Wilts. He had no issue 

(2) Robert, d. s. p. 1247. 

(3) John, died unmarried 

III. Henry, in 1225, held the lands of Wexham, Co. Bucks. 

IV. Godefridus, in 1204, was in command of the King's ships, and took 
them to Rothomagum (Rouen) in his service. 

V. William, had plaint against John de Caverton for the lands of Shenley. 
He gave half virgate to the abbey of Westwude in Liesnes (Erith 
Abbey), which was founded by Richard de Lucie in 11 78. He held 
the advowson of the church at Witewic, Co. Leic, to which he appointed 
the cleric, 7 Ric I., and owned lands — Barton, Brume, and Caldecote, 
Inter Cantuar, in Shenlee, Co. Bucks ; Westlingworth, Co. Bed. ; and 
Witewic, Co. Leic. 

His only son, viz. : 
(i) Thomas, in 1208, claimed the right to present to the church of 
Witewic. He married Margery , and had two daughters, co- 
heiresses and minors at the date of their father's death, viz. : 


(a) Alicia, married, without her guardian's consent, Robert de 

Verdun; and their son, John de Verdun, in 13 13, held the 
fifth part of a knight's fee in Oddeston, of John de Hastings, 
portion of lands formerly held by Thos. Maunsell. 

(b) Mabilia, married Rici de la Vache. He had been appointed 

guardian of the minors. In 1283 they purchased back from 
Wm. de Aette lands, which, owing to certain trespasses of 
their father, had, by decree of Kenilworth, been granted to 
him. In 1320 the lands of Witewic passed into the hands of 
Henry, Baron de Beaumont, by his marriage with Alice, dau. 
of Alexander Comyn, when he was licensed to convert the 
manor house into a castlei 

There is still in Co. Bucks a place called Shenlee Mansell, 
and an estate near Chalfont St. Giles named De la Vache. 

VL Sampson, held lands in Turvey in 1235. He married and had a son, viz. : 

(1) William, who, in 1236, held lands at Tortworth and Minchene, 
Hampton, County Gloucester. In 1287 he appears to have 
sold portion of his lands at Turvey, Co. Bucks, to his cousin, 
Wm. le Mordaunt, who then impaled the wood of Maunsell Grove 
with tlie rest of his lands in Turvey, having licence in 1299 to 
convert them into a park. He had a dau., Beatrice, who, in 1294, 
recovered possession of lands at Turvey from Reginald le Ken. 
He also had a son : 

William, who, in 1305, was sued by Wm. le Muner for damage 
to lands at Turveston — claim, ;^ioo. He accompanied King 
Edward in his expedition to Scotland, and was knighted. In 
13 14 he held the custody of Co. Gloucester during the King's 
pleasure, and rights over the sixth and seventh parts of the 
pesage, or markets and fairs, of Southampton, with all the 

returns belonging to the same. He married Margaretta , 

and had a daughter, who got from him the lands of Strood, 
and married Sir John Spelman, Knt., of Norfolk. In Narburgh 
Church, Norfolk, is a monument over which may be seen the 
arms of Spelman quartering Maunsell in the sixth, and bearing 
the following inscription — " Clementi Spelman, Equite aurato 
Norfolciae (1509), Viscomte, etc., obit 24 die Sept., 1607." 
In die fourth Edward IV. Sir James Berkeley, of Berkeley, 
Knt, issued the following order — "Right well beloved seirs, 
I greet you well wth all my hart, and pray you that you tender 
the right of my well beloved servant and yours, Will'm Payne, 
touching to his Right in Strood as you will that I should doe 
any thing att your prayers, ffor truly Sr. John Spilman had 


the land in Strood of Sir Wm. Mauncell with a daughter of 
his in ffree mariag and held it in time of hiy lift'e, and his son, 
Nicholas Spilman, held it the time of his liffe, and Thos. 
Spibnan, Nicholas' sonn, held it the time of his hffe, and 
Margery, daughter of the said Thomas, late the wife of Wm. 
Payne, held it 46 years." 

Sir Wm. Maunsell also had a son, viz : 
William, born 1295, who held Lypiate Manor and lands in 
Bisley, Co. Glos., and to whom Robert de Eton yielded 
lands, etc., near Eton in 1362. In 1346 he, with Henry 
Danvers, v/as assessed 13 s. 4d. on the knighting of 
Edward of Woodstock, for a third part of a knight's fee 
in Oddeston and Sancketon, parcel of the fee of John 
de Hastings, Lord of Abergaveny. He married and had 
a son, viz. : 

Sir Philip Mauncell, Knt., who held lands — Mauncell 
Place, Pusey, and Bryttes Place, Bockland, Co. 
Berks ; Redyse, Bampton, Co. Oxon ; and Lypiate, 
Co. Glouc. He was Governor of Rochelle in 1372, 
and is described by Anquitel in his "History of 
France" as having lost that fortress by not being 
able to read. The mayor of the town, by a forged 
despatch, induced Maunsell to attend a review out- 
side the walls when, by a preconcerted movement, 
the French troops took possession of the place. He 
married the dau. of Sir John Atthyle, of Geystwick, 
Co. Norfolk, and died 1396. In Narburgh Church 
there is a window, or memorial, evidently to him, dis- 
playing the following arms — "Azure Seme of Cross 
Crosslets and three Crescents Argent." — See "Pa- 
trician," vol. i. (Burke). 

Walter Maunsell, the eldest son, held the sergeanty of Little Missenden 
as Napkin Bearer to the King, and owned tlie manors and lands of Soulbury, 
Bucks. ; Ingepenne, Berks. ; and lands in Staffordshire by the service of 
marshalling in the house of the King. He held also one knight's fee of 
Roger de Somery of the honour of Dudley,^') and one fee of the honour of 
the Earl and fee of tlie Marshal in Buddeley, Co. Wilts, and, with Nicholas 
de Ingepenne and the Abbot of Tyckford, held two fees of the fee of Roger 
de Somery. Also he held two fees in Hartwell, Co. Northants, of the fee 
of Wm. de Say of the honour of Dover, half a hide of land of the fee of 
Pevershale of Nottinghain "by the sergeanty of finding for our lord the 
King, for his army in Wales, one horse of the price of five shillings, with a 
(') Honour— a Seigniory of several manors, held under one baron, or lord-paramount. 


See Alfcnd/x, No. 75. 


halter of the price of one penny, and to pay toll for forty days." His lands 
were taken from him 1216, but were restored second of Henry HI. 

He married Hawisia, daughter of John de Somerie by Hawisia, daughter 
of Gervaise Pagnell, Baron of Dudley (this latter Hawisia married, secondly, 
Roger de Berkeley, of Berkeley Castle, Co. Gloucester), by Hawisia, dau. 
of Robert de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, by Hawisia, daughter of Andre de 
Vitre, by Agnes, half-sister of the Conqueror. For the health of the soul 
of his cousin, and wife's uncle, Robert Pagnell, last of the two sons of 
Gervaise Pagnell, he bestowed some of tlie lands of Ingepenne on the 
Priory of Tickford, which gift his son, John, subsequently confirmed in his 
court at Soulbury, his brothers Philip, Henry, Peter, and Robert being 
witnesses to the deed. 

Walter died about 1250, for in the following year Hawisia held the 
lands of Ingepenne in dower. Of his issue, viz. : 
I. John, of whom afterwards, 
II. Philip, d. s. p. 

III. Henry, held the presentation to benefice of Soulbury, 1276. 

IV. Peter, became a monk at Tyckford. 

V. Robert, whose homage the King accepted in 1250 for lands in Co. 

VI. Michael, in 1279, assigned to Walter de Agmondeshem certain lands in 
Agmondeshem, portion of the lands his father held by sergeanty of 
Little Missenden. 

VII. Clarissa, married Sir Geoffrey de Childewick, of Co. Hertford. 
VIII. A daughter, married — Le Norays, and they had a daughter, Matilda, 
to whom John Maunsell, in 1250, made free gift of Winterbourne, Gun- 
nour, Co. Gloucester, on her intermarriage with Henrico de la Mare. 
She was ancestor of Peter de la Mare who, in 1376, as Speal-:er of "the 
good Parliament," was thrown into prison by John of Gaunt for refusing 
to vote supplies. This Peter had a sister Joan who married Simon de 
Brockburn, who died 15 Ric. II., leaving a daughter, Margaret, who 
married Sir Wm. Seymour, ancestor of the Dukes of Somerset. 

John Maunsell appears from early youth to have been brought up at court, 
for in a letter written by King Henry III. to the College of Cardinals, dated 
1st January, 1262, of Maunsell he says : — "Sub alis nostris educatus cujus 
ingenium mores et marita ab adolescentia sua probarimus," etc. 

He married Joan, only daughter and heir of Simon Beauchamp, Baron 
of Bedford, Hereditary Almoner to the King, by Isabella, daughter of Hugh 
Wake, Lord of Chesterfield, and sister of Baldwin, Lord Wake (who was 
also married to Simon's sister, Ella), and granddaughter of Wm. Beauchamp, 


Baron of Bedford, by Avicea or Idonea, daughter of Wm. Longspee, Earl 
of Salisbury. In 1226 he was appointed Constable of Dover and Warden 
of the Cinque Ports, and, in addition to the family estates which he in- 
herited in Beds., Bucks., Leic, etc., and the estates in right of his wife, of 
which he had free warren of the King, he also, between years 1241 and 
1 25 1, got grants of the following manors and lands, viz. — Hyldesle, Co. 
Berks. ; Renham and Berton, Co. Suffolk ; Wepeham and Sedgwick, Co. 
Sussex ; Wygan, Co. Lancaster (for which town he got a charter) ; Merston, 
Co. Wilts. ; Bergton and Meonstoke, Hants., together with their markets 
and fairs ; Tidderleigh, Co. Ebor ; Messeberg and Polres, and Bilsington, 
Co. Kent. Of the last-named lands he had the sergeanty as Cup Bearer 
to the King, and had them of the gift of his uncle, Roger de Somerie, one 
of the heirs of Hugh, Earl of Arundel, he (Roger) having married Nicholia, 
one of the four daughters and co-heirs of said Hugh, Earl of Arundel, and 
in right of his wife had a third part of the manor of Bilsington. At Bilsing- 
ton John Maunsell founded a priory for the King and Queen, valued at 
;^8 IS. 6d. yearly, and endowed it with lands Polres, Gozehale, and Ecche, 
besides the manor of Belgar, near Sid. A small alien house was also 
established by him at Romney in 1257. Bilsington was surrendered 28 
Feb., 1535, its revenues not amomiting to £200 p. a., and in the 36 Plenry 
VIII. it was given with others to Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canter- 
bury, and still forms portion of that see. It had previously been rented to 
Sir Anthony St. Leger, Knt., for 50 years, at £70 per annum. A farm- 
house, formed from the ruins of the Priory, is now the only remains of the 

In Shropshire, Maunsell held the town of Lega Cambrey in ward of 
the fee of Robert Thocket ; he had wardship of the son and heir of Edmund 
de Kemesek, for which he paid 300 marks ; of the heir of Alardi le Fleming, 
for which he paid 500 marks ; and of Henry, son and heir of Mathew Hoese, 
for which he paid 600 marks ; also of William de Buri, of Alppintorn, 
Shropshire, who, being under age, the King "gave the wardship to John 
Maunsell, and he holds 2 parts, 9 perches." He was also appointed guardian 
to Felicia, daughter of Humphry de Millers, whom he married as second 
wife. She survived him, for, in 1263, as widow of John Maunsell, she held 
in dower the lands of Rossington, Co. Derby. 

In 1243 he was appointed Chancellor of London, and resigned that 
post in 1259. He was, in 1255, appointed Provost of Beverley and 
Treasurer of York, and, in 1258, Member of Privy Council, Lord Justiciar 
of England, and Constable of the Tower, which latter was considered the 
most honorable appointment in the gift of the King. In 1249 he had royal 
permission to embattle his house at Sedgwyck, and had free warren in all his 
demesnes in counties Surrey, York, Berks., Herts., Sussex, etc., and all 
lines of the sergeanty of Bilsington. In 1250 he, with the King and several 
nobles, was crossed to go to Jerusalem, and in 125 1 he compelled the 



If ^ 



monastery at Tewkesbury to pay him tithes of Kingeston Manor. As a 
chief member of the Council, he and Richard de Clare, Earl of Gloucester, 
were the only parties freely admitted to the King's presence during Prince 
Edward's disobedience. In 1256 he and Gloucester had full power to treat 
with the foreign ambassadors re Richard, Duke of Cornwall, being elected 
King of the Romans; and in 1259 he and the Earls of Gloucester and 
Leicester were sent as ambassadors to France to treat for the marriage of 
Prince Edward and Beatrice, daughter of the King of France. He was 
employed as ambassador to the Pope, to the King of Scots, and to the 
King of Spain. The charter, with its golden seal, which he brc>ught back 
from Spain, is still amongst the archives at Westminster. 

He was one of the Royal Representatives at Oxford Parliament, and 
Member of the Council of 15, having been previously one of the two chosen 
by the Barons from the Royal Electors, the Earl of Warwick being the 
other. In a Bull from Pope Alexander IV. advising the King to pay the 
debts in re the affair Sicily, and addressed to John Maunsell, dated June 
3rd, 1258, he says: — "Alexander, Bishop, Servant of the Servants of God, 
to his beloved son, John Mavnsell, Treasurer of York, greeting and Apos- 
tolic benediction"; and in a letter from Henry III. to Pope Alexander, he 
says — "John Maunsell is quite innocent of the beating of a proctor at York." 
In 1260 arose a violent dispute between his Majesty the King and the 
English Barons, because, it was said, acting on advice of John Maunsell, 
Robert Walerand, Peter de Sauvage, and others, he attempted to infringe 
the statutes and provisions which had been laid down in the general 
Parliament at Oxford. In 1261 an agreement was arrived at, the matter 
in dispute being referred, on the King's part, to the Bishop of Salisbury, 
the Bishop of Hereford, and John Maunsell, and on the Barons' side to 
Robert de Marisco, Dean of Lincoln, Roger Bigod, Count, and Peter de 
Mumford ; and in case of disagreement, Richard, King of the Romans, to 
act as umpire. Maunsell held the advowson of seventy (some authorities say 
seven hundred) parishes, which brought him a revenue of over 18,000 marks 
per an. "He feasted at his hcuse, Tole Hill Field, at one time, two kings, 
two queens, with their dependances, 700 messe of meate scarce serving for 
the first dinner." "With his owne hands in battle betwixt the English 
and the French near to Tailborge, in France, he took prisoner one Peter 
Orige, a gentleman of eminent place and qualitie." About 1263, he was 
named one of the executors of the will of Henry III., and, as his name does 
not again appear in state affairs, it is thought that he died in that year ; 
and as on 7th February, 12O4-5, Johannes de Chishull, Archdeacon of 
London, was appointed to the Provostship of Beverley, and as King Henry 
was forced to confer on Alanwick de Montfort the Treasurership of York, 
it being then in custody of Simon Montfort, Earl of Leicester, as 'tis 
expressed, void by Maunsell's death, and, as already stated, his widow. 
Felicia, held the lands of Rossington in dower in 1263, it follows that he 


must have died in that year. He was buried at York Minster, and King 
Henry " granted lands to that church that prayers and masses might be said 
there annually for the repose of the soul of John Maunsell." Soon after, 
John de Aucer and James de Cimiterio took violent possession of the grant 
and detained it, whereupon the monks brought action for its recovery in 
1274, alleging "they cannot perform the anniversary, to the peril of the 
soul of the deceased, and of their own souls," whereupon King Edward 
confirmed the grant, and the memorial service was continued in the church 
of St. Peter's, York, until the Reformation. Matthew Paris, and some 
other writers, assert that Maunsell died abroad, in 1268, "poor, wretched 
and miserable " ; but from the above this cannot be true, as also from the 
fact that, in addition to estates in England, he left large properties in 
Ireland, for by deed dated i6th Dec, 1266, "Sir RolSert de Twenge, Knt., 
and Simon of Stourbridge, and the other executors of his will, constituted 
Wm. de Bakapuz as their proctor in all matters throughout Ireland relating 
to said will." Immediately after his death, in 1263, most of his lands were 
seized by the Earl of Leicester and given to his son, Simon de Montfort, jun., 
but after the battle of Eveshiim, in which Leicester and his son were slain, 
the property was restored to the Maunsell family. In 1264 his two eldest 
sons, and his grandson, Henry Hoese, were in open hostility to the King. 
In 1266 the manor of Hyldesle was ceded to Robert de Wytefeud, and in 
1268 the manors of Wepeham and Sedgwyck, Co. Sussex, and of Beimund, 
Co. Essex, were surrendered to the King, who then granted them to Peter 
de Chaventree for his homage and service. 

In addition to male issue, he appears to have had a daughter married 
to — Gyrlyngton, of Gyrlington Hall, Yorks, for, on the 3rd Edwd. I., 
Gunilda, who was wife of Mansell de Girlington, claimed against John 
Maunsell, son of the abovenamed John, custodian of the lands, and heir of 
Master Mansell de Girlington, and against John fil Manselli de Girlington, 
against Richard Maunsell, against Felicia Maunsell, John Emon, and Richd. 
de Erndesby, certain lands in Girlington as her dower. He also had male 
issue by his first wife, viz : 

I. Thomas, of whom afterwards. 

II. John, described in the Rotulorum Chart, 30 Henry III., as John Maun- 
sell, jun., got from the King the advowson of Lugwardine church, and 
churches or chapels in Urcliingfeld, Co. Hereford. In Irish "Close 
Rolls" he is described as brother of Walter, and acknowledges himself 
indebted to William, Archbishop of Cashel, in ;^300. 

III. Henry, was killed at Northampton, in 1264, whilst defending the 
citadel for the Barons against the royal forces. He does not appear to 
have been married. 

IV. Walter, was entrusted witli the King's letters to the Archbishop of 



Cashel. On 23 January, 125 1, he got the gift of the Capital Serjeancy 
of Munster, and on ist March of that year, as per commission signed 
by John Mamisell, he was appointed Governor of the Castle of 
Occonath in that district. The commission runs as follows : — " Mandate 
to John Fitzgeoffrey, Justiciar of Ireland, that, taking with him good 
and lawful men, he viewe the defects of the King's Castle of Occonath, 
and cause them to be thoroughly repaired, and that he cause Walter 
Maunsell, to whom the King has committed its custody, to have what 
belongs to him for that custody. The King will cause the expenses 
to be allowed to the Judiciary." Occonath was situate in that district 
portion of which is now known as Coonagh, and then comprised the 
counties Limerick and Tipperary, etc. He also held the castle of 
Balygady. On Maunsell's death, in 13 18, the sergeancy of Munster 
was given to Robert Bagod, and the castle of Balygady to Maurice de 
Rupeforte, " to hold the same till the lawful age of Walter's heir." He 
had issue, viz. : 

(i) Robert, who was sheriff of Tipperary, 1304, and died before his 
father, leaving a son, John, who, in 1356, was co-sheriff of the 
county of the Cross of Tipperary with John Everh^rd. In the 
baronies of EUiogurty and Iffa and Offa, in that county, is a town- 
land called Maunselltown. 

(2) Philip, sold lands at Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, in 1307, to 

Gilbert de Clare, and then held by Joan, Countess of Gloucester. 

(3) John. 

(4) Thomas. 

V. Galfridus, held lands Grillington, Co. Yorks, and gave all his lands 

in Ingepenne, Berks, to Tichfield or Tickford Priory, which lands are 
described as having been formerly held by John Maunsell, lord of the 
manor. He became a monk at Tickford. See Appendix, Nos, 2 and 3. 

VI. Richard, in 1253, held jointly with his brother, Thomas, the manor, 
markets and fairs, and free warren in Budeford or Bridforth, Co. Yorks, 
and, in 1262, the King granted him a licence to hunt in that county. 
He also held lands of Comb Quynton, Co. Cumberland. He also held 
Hundreds in Hovedene, Co. Yorks, and his bailiff, John Skelton, 
vacated a certain ward to Richard the Forester. He had issue, viz 1 
(i) John, of Brudeford, who had action against Wm. de Karliolo in 

1307, and was declared owner of the property at Comb Quynton. 
He married Isabella, dau. and co-heir of Richard de Sto Dyonysio. 
of Hempstead, Co. Norfolk, and in 13 12 had licence to enfeoff 
half the manor of Hempstead with the moiety of the church of 
Norfolk ; and had also licence of the King to grant Henry Maun- 


sell and Beatrice, his wife, one moiety of the manor of Hempstead, 
by Irnham, and the advovvson of a moiety of its church, held in 
chief, and the reversion of the other moiety, which Roger de 
Thorpe, of Wystonwe, and Joan, his wife, held for their lives. 
He had issue, viz. : 

(A) Henry, referred to above, married Beatrix, daughter of Thos. 
de Berton, of Rondham, Co. Norfolk, and had issue: 

(a) John, who paid 20s. for licence to obtain the advowson 

of Hempstead in 1358, and died unmarried in 1362. 

(b) Walter, died unmarried in 1365. 

(c) Alicia, married and had a daughter, Beatrix, aged 30 

in 1365. 

(d) Mariota, married and had a daughter, Rosa, aged 18 
in 1365. Rosa married Robert Robel, for, in 1365, the 
King commanded the sheriff of Norfolk "to get security 
from Beatrix, dau. of Alicia Maunsell — the one, Robert 
Robel, and Rosa, his wife, daughter of Meriot Maunsell, 
the other — to make lawful partition of the moiety of the 
manor of Hempstead, with its appurtenances, which is 
held of the King in chief by military service." 

(2) Walter, was of Hoton, Co. Cumberland, and had a son, viz. : 

(a) Patrick, aged 21 in 1296, in which year the King accepted 
his fidelity for all the lands and tenements which his father 
held in chief of the King. 

(3) Adam, had right of the gift of the Priory of St. Swithin, Winchester, 

which, on his demise in 1280, reverted to the King, and which the 
King then granted for life to Aunger de Chancovy. 

Thomas Maunsell, in 1225, held joinly with Alexander D'Oville, from the 
Earl of Arundel, the lands of Tackele, Co. Oxon ; he also held lands in 
Bucks and Berks, the manor of Reddeston, and half a fee in Farendun, 
Northants, under the Earl of Winchester, as well as the lands in Yorks held 
jointly with his brother, Richard. 

He was Escheator of Bucks, 1251, and Jurator in Essex in 1255. In 
1250 he was sent on a mission to Rome re the Crusades. He fought during 
the Barons' wars, and, with Simon de Montfort, jun., Baldwin le Wake, and 
several others, was wounded and taken prisoner at Northampton, 1264. 
He was created a Knight Banneret by the Earl of Leicester, and was 
appointed one of the fifteen standard bearers in the Barons' army After 
the above battle he was thrown into prison and attainted in Parliament, 
but his powerful influence soon obtained his freedom and a repeal of the 
attainder on payment of a small fine. Subsequently he appears to have 




''mm ^ 
"^ i& ^^ ^"^ 




been on intimate terms with King Edward. He also held lands in Pape- 
worth Hundred, Co. Kent, of Thomas de Ellesworth by service of two suits 
of court per annum, where his father had held lands at id. per year. 

He married, first, Hana, dau. of Sir Henry Grey, Knt., son of John 
Grey, Justice of Chester, progenitor of Lords Grey of Wilton and Ruthyn, 
and who gave to the canons of Nutley, Bucks, a cottage in Co. Norfolk to 
pray for his soul and that of Aleanor, his wife. This John Grey was son 
of Henry de Grey, of Thurrock Grey, Essex, by Isolda, niece and sole heir 
of Robert Bardolf. 

He married, secondly, Johanna, who survived him ; and in the Hilary 
term at York, 27 Edward I. she recovered lands at Croydon as dau. and

Ernesby. He left issue, viz. : 

(i) John, named in a state paper, 8 July, 13 10, as John, son of 
John Maunsell. In 13 13 letters of protection were issued to him 
on his going beyond seas with the Earl of Richmond in the 
King's service. In 1324 he was assessed on the lands of Eddeston 
and Doddeworth ; and on his death, in 133 1-2, the King's escheator 
was commanded to take into the King's hands all the lands of 
which John Maunsell died possessed, during minority of the heir. 
He married Joan , and had a son, viz : 

(A) Richard, aged 13 at his father's death, and who, in 1398, held 
the lands of Burbache and Eddeston from Richard Earl of

Kent. He was ancestor of the Barons of Galtrim, and of Edward 
Hussey, created Earl of Beaulieu in 1784.

Ferry ; from whose descendants that property came mto the 
Maunsell family (see page 24). 

(b) Margaret, married Griffiths Thomas, of Llandemore. 

(c) Alice, died unmarried. 

Philip ManSELL, son of John Maunsell and Cecily, his wife, was 15 years of 
age when he succeeded to his father's and grandfather's estates, as per 
Inquisition held at Swansea by Humphry Plantagenet, Duke of Gloucester, 
13^1 Henry VI. About 1444, he married, first, Mabel, dau. of Griffiths 
Nicolas, of Newton, Co. Caermarthen, heiress of her mother, Jane, heiress 
of Jenkin ap Rees ap David, descended from Cadifor ap Dinawall. In 
the Inquisition recorded above, Philip is mentioned as the son of John, and 
grandson of Richard Maunsell. 

Amongst the MSS. at Britton Ferry, copied by Revd. J. M. Traherne, 
appears the following : — " Ego Phillipus filius et haeres nuper Johis Maunsell 
de Oxenwych, 10 die mens Maie, 1444." By a deed dated 1459-60, to 
which Sir Wm. Berkeley, Knt., then Seneschal of Gower, and others are 
witnesses, he entailed his Gower estates on his sons, John, Leonard, and 
Jenkyn. (See Appendix, Nos. "j"] and 84.) 

He married, secondly, about this latter date, Elizabeth, dau. and heir 
of Sir Philip Long, Knt., and had further issue. 

He fought at Mortimers Cross against Edward, Earl of March (after 
wards Edward IV.). On the same side were Jasper Earl of Pembroke, 
James Earl of Ormond, and Owen Tudor (who had married Queen Catherine, 
mother of Henry VI.). For this he was attainted in Parliament in 1464, 
and two years later his Gower estates were bestowed upon Sir Roger 
Vaughan, Knt., as per Patent Roll, 5th Edward IV. 

Philip and his sons, under leadership of his relative the Earl of Warwick, 
fought throughout for the Red Rose. Two of his sons were slain ; and 
at the battle of Tewkesbury he was taken prisoner by Sir John Conyers, 
and was soon afterwards beheaded. 

Philip appears to have been the first to omit the "u" in spelling of 

the name. He had issue by his first wife, viz. : 

I. John, killed in battle. 
II. Leonard, killed in battle. 

III. Jenkyn, of whom afterwards. 

He had issue by second marriage, viz. : 

IV. Richard, for which see Maunsell of Chicheley, page 39.

by whom she had no issue ; secondly, Sir Richard Herbert, of 
Ewias, Co. Monmouth, ancestor of the present Earl of Pembroke ; 
and thirdly. Sir Wm. Bawdrip. 

JENKIN MANSELL.on the accession of Henry VII., in 1485, obtained a repeal of 
the attainder against his father and a restoration in blood and estates. At a 
tournament given by his cousin. Sir Rice ap Thomas, Knt., Constable and 
Lieutenant of Brecknock, 21st Henry VII., to celebrate the order of the 
Garter having been conferred on him, amongst others from Glamorgan came

he bore for motto, " Perit sine adversario virtus." — See Cambrian Register, 
Vol. I., page 25. In i486 he married Edith, dau. and heir of Sir Geo. Kyme 
or Kene, Knt., of Well Hall, Eltham, Co. Kent, and granddaughter of Sir 
Wm. Kyme (who was sherifT of Kent 25 Hen. VI.). by Agnes, widow of 
John Tettershall, and dau. of John Chichele, Chamberlain of London, by 
Margery, dau. of Sir Thos. Knolles, Lord Mayor of London. Agnes was

and was then known as Mansell Mansell. He married, first, in 1742,

Praed was Capt., and he was subsequently Colonel of that Corps. 
He was Commissioner of the French Emigration Committee 
appointed in England to look after H.R.H. the King of France, 
his Staff, and the French Emigrants, etc. To mark his appreciation 
of the way this duty was performed King Louis XVIII. sent 
Mansell a golden snuffbox, in the lid of which was a portrait of 
the King painted in blue on ivory, and encircled with diamonds. 
Inside was an inscription addressed to Mons. M. D. Mansel, by 
S. M. the King of France, and enclosed was the order of the 
Fleur de Lys, with white satin ribbon. Accompanying them was 
a letter dated 27th August, 18 16, expressing his Majesty's thanks 
and appreciation of the valuable services rendered to him, and 
to his subjects. Colonel Mansel, at request of the Duke of Buck- 
ingham, contested, in the Liberal interest, a Conservative seat in 
Cornwall, and being unsuccessful, suffered heavy financial loss. 
He died suddenly, nth August, 1823, ifi the 60th year of 


his age, and his widow was so prostrated by the shock that she 
died on the 25th of the same month. After his death Lathbury Park 
was put up for sale. It was purchased by trustees for Mary 
Isabella, sole heiress of Richard J. Tibbits, of Barton Seagrave, 
Northants, now Dowager Viscountess Hood (see p. 82).

pedite the lease of the Manor of Hotham, Co. York, to Richd. Maunsell, and on 6th of the

The wills of Richard and of Thomas, and of John Maunsell, shew that they held the following 
lands, viz, :— Chicheley, Eckney, Emberton, Hardmeade, Haversham, Moussle, Much Crawley, 
North Crawley, Newport-Paynell, Petisha, and Sherrington, Co. Bucks, Hulcot and Kislingbury,

in 1794, falling gloriously at the battle of Coteau. Having 
been directed by General Otto to attack the enemy in flank, after some 
manoeuvres, he came up with the French in the valley of Cawdry, charged, 
and completely defeated them. He then rushed at the head of his brigade 
against a battery of fourteen pieces of cannon, which were placed on an 
eminence behind a deep ravine, into which many of his front rank fell. He 
passed the ravine, and, at the head of a considerable body of his men, 
charged the cannon with inconceivable intrepidity, and complete success. 
His heroic conduct decided the day ; but at the mouth of this battery, after 
having three horses shot under him, he received his death wound. One 
grape-shot entered his chest, fracturing his spine, and coming out between 
his shoulders, while another broke his arm to splinters. His eldest son and 
aide-de-camp, Capt. Mansel, rushed to his fatlier's aid, but he was wounded 
and taken prisoner. The General was buried in a redoubt at the head of 
the camp with all military honors, six Generals (Abercrombie, Dundas, 
Harcourt, Garth, and Fox) supported tJie pall, and the Duke of York, the 
Stadtholder, the hereditary Prince of Orange, and all the ofhcers of the 
army attended the funeral."

of Scots, whilst she was in the custody of the Earl and Countess 
of Shrewsbury at Tutbury, and had the honour of a conversa- 
tion with her. In 1587, the Lord Deputy gave him the 
custody of Duncannon, at the mouth of Waterford harbour, 
the fortifications having been built on Sir Nicholas' ground, 
which comprised the whole barony of Dunbrody, "and had 
built a castle which commanded the fortifications, and could 
control whoever was appointed to the post." — (State Papers, 
Ireland, Hamilton Series, Brit. Museum, page 441). 

In 1572, he was appointed Master of the Rolls, and in

Maximilian I. created him " Baron D'Albi, both for himself and his descend- 
ants," A.D. 1 5 13. The original patent is still at Brussels, and is attested 
by letters from King Henry VIII. to the Emperor, setting forth the motives 
which induced the granting of the patent, namely : " The origin of the 
name, taken from Viti, a people of Germany, the bravery which that noble- 
man displayed at the sieges of Tourenne and Tournay, the goodness of his 
disposition, and, finally, the beauty of his person, a quality hereditary in 
that family." (See Abbe McGeoghegan's "History of Ireland," chap xvii., 
p. 267). He married Margaret, dau. of — Sarsfield, armgr., and had, with

Castle, and sumptuously entertained at the Salmon Weir. At conclusion of 
his visit he left by St. John's Gate, where he presented to the city a silver- 
gilt cup, valued at £60, and knighted the Mayor. In August, 1658, the 
Emperor Leopold created Sir Dominick White "Baron and Count D'Albi,

ecutors. Probate granted to the latter

III. Andrew, was naturahzed in France, and was created Comte d'Albi by

appoint a successor to the Earl of Castlemaine, but with a totally different 
character, and has proposed to his Cabinet Council the person of Count 
D'Albi, an Irishman, and brother of the Marquis D'Albeville, who went 
to the States General of Holland at the pressing invitation of the King." 

He married Anastasia, dau. of Sir James Walsh, Bart., Co. Water-

Pontoise," Abbess of the Convent at Ypres, which was endowed by

Ignatius White, Or Vitus, was created a Baronet by King Charles II., 

Sir, Bart., 29th June, 1677. In the College of Anns, London, is 

Marquis D'Albeville, an official copy, I. xxvi., fo. 100, of the Earl Marshal's 

warrant, 30th October, 1686 (2 Jac. II.) to enter the 

royal sign manuel of Charles II. (7th April, 1679), whereby he allowed " The 


Right Honourable Sir Ignatius White, ahas D'Alby, Knt. Baronet of Eng- 
land, and Baron de Vigue, now Marquis D'Albeville and Knt. Baron, Count 
and Marquis of the Empire, to receive honours from any King at amity with 
his Majesty." Accordmgly, there is entered a grant from the Emperor 
Leopold, dated August, 1658, to Dominick Vitus, alias White, Baron and 
Count D'Albi, that he and his children should be Counts and Countesses 
D'Albi. Also one from the same, 'dated 20th August, 1677, to Ignatius 
Vitus, ahas White, that he and his children should be Marquis and Mar- 
chioness D'Albeville. The Dutch Ambassador, Van Citters, in announcing 
his appointment as Ambassador to the States in 1686 mentions him as 
"formerly known by the name of Baron White, an Irishman, and a Roman 
Catholic, of good understanding and good breeding, who conducted the 
business of the English Monarchy for several years at Brussels and Madrid 
in the lifetime of the late King Charles II." Whilst in Holland he gave a 
magnificent entertainment, and had a medal struck, to celebrate the birth 
of Prince James. In consequence of his persistent and effectual demands 
that Bishop Burnett should be removed from the Council of the Prince of 
Orange, he incurred that political prelate's unstinted animosity, insomuch that 
the Marquis was subjected to much personal danger, and many insults from ■ 
Burnett's partizans. After the battle of the Boyne, by D'Albeville's advice 
and that of the Duke of Powis, the two Chancellors and the Lord Chief 
Baron, the trusted members of the Council, King James resolved to go to 
France. D'Albeville accompanied the King, and was placed under attainder 
1 69 1, and on nth May of that year he and Charles White, of Leixlip ; 
Nicholas White, of Clonmel ; Rowland Wliite, of Newry ; Nicholas White, 
of New Ross ; Robert and Richard and John Grace, of Courtown ; Robert 
Grace, senior and junior, of Thomastown ; and Richard and Ohver Grace, 
of Athlone, and several others, were proclaimed outlaws from the Tholsol 
at Dublin. He died in France prior to 1698. He married, first the Hon. 
Maria, dau. of Patrick FitzThomas, nineteenth Lord of Kerry. She died

Ultonia, or Ulster, in Spain in 1732, and they had a son, afterwards

family of Terry.

James White was Lieutenant in Colonel Dongan's Limerick Regiment of Foot, 
of which Patrick Sarsfield was Captain. After the siege of Limerick this 
regiment went to France and was re-formed, and then named "The King of 
England's Regiment of Dragoons," of which Patrick Sarsfield, Lord Kil- 
mallock, was Colonel, and White was Captain. The Chevalier de Bellereve 
— Marshal Vendome — in his report of the battle of Villa Viciosa, 1710, says : 
"The Lieut.-Colonel of the regiment received a musket shot through the 
body while charging the enemy, and the Marquis D'Albeville, one of his 
brave captains, sabre in hand, all covered with wounds, lost his life, after 
having won admiration by many brave and intrepid actions." He had, with 
other issue, an eldest son, viz. : 

John White, who being a strict adherent of the House of Stuart, accompanied 
Prince Charles Edward to Scotland, and fought at Prestonpans and 
Culloden. He was attended by his eldest son, Thomas, then only a youth, 
who subsequently stated tliat the last time he saw his father alive was the 
night before the battle of Culloden, when he and all the' other officers were 
on bended knee drinking health and prosperity to the Prince. The following

(25) "Maunsell House, Somersetshire; now the seat of Sir Cuthbert Slade, Bart., was 
the hereditary possession of the Maunsell family for twenty generations. In the time of 
Henry II., William de Erleigh granted it to Philip Arbalistarius in free marriage with 
Mabel, his daughter, to be held by the payment of two young pigs every Whitsuntide at 
his Court of Durston, which grant Aucilia, widow of the said William, confirmed to Philip 
de Maunsel, son of the above-mentioned Philip, who married a daughter of Sir Hugh 
de Aubervilie. He was the first of this branch that assumed the name Maunsell. In this 
family the manor, and ancient mansion, continued till the time of Charles I., when it 
was purchased of their heirs by the family of Bacon, who resided there in the commence- 
ment of nineteenth century. Robert de Maunsell bore on his seal, temp. Henry IV., a 
hand clenched ; but William, son of the said Robert, took the present arms, namely, 
Sable, three Jambs argent." — ^See Collinson's "Somerset." 

(26) Maunsell Court, or Place, Co. Berks, appears to have passed into the hands of 
the great Berks and Oxon family of Fittiplace, either by purchase or intermarriage, and 
was held by them temp. Henry MIL The old distich still remains in that locality, 
evidencing the wealth and influence of this and two other families: — 

"The Laceys, the Tracys, and Fittiiilaces, 
Own all the mansions, the lands, and the places." 
In 1673 the manor belonged to a Maijor Dunch, and his daughter and heiress, Jane, 
married Francis Keck, which latter family sold the place, in 1745, to John Allan Pusey. 
It still forms a ])ortion of the Pusey estates in that county. Maijor Dunch's father was 
M.P. for Berks in the Parliament 1654, '56, '58. He married the sister-in-law of Richard 
Cromwell (the Protector's son).

Parish of Chicheley. In Parliamentary Returns of 1786 a donor of this name is staled 
to have given a rent charge of £2 12s. p. a. to the poor of the parish. This rent charge 
issues out of a close of pasture land containing about two acres, and now forming portion 
of the Chester estate. It is regularly paid to the vicar by instalments of 20s. and 32s. 
on Good Friday and St. Thomas' Day in every year, and distributed in shares of is. 
each to poor persons selected by him. The objects chosen are chiefly widows and 
widowers of good character, and in receipt of parish relief. A list of them is kept in 
the church books. 

Chicheley is situate near Newport Paguell, Bucks, where was formerly the Abbey or 
Priory of Tickford, or Tichfield. No remnant of the priory now remains. Near also is 
Hardmeade, a townland just beyond Chicheley Hall, on the Bedford side ; North Crawley, 
a small village half a mile from the Hall ; and Emberton, a small village on the north 
side, next Olncv, Emberton Woods being on top of the hill. There is an old dovecot 
close to Chicheley Hall, such being of very ancient origin, and then only allowed to 
be held by the privileged few.

by Lord Charles Somerset. The following letter, re Sir Anthony Mauncell, was written 
by Revd. Joseph Bentham, prebendary of Lincoln, to his son, Anthony, dated 3rd May, 
1714, in writing about his mother: "She was the only daughter of Thomas Duckett, of 
Steeple Morden, in the County of Cambridge, a very ancient and honourable family ; 
her mother's maiden name was Anne Mansel, an incomparable lady both in person and 
parts; she was daughter of Sir Anthony Mansel, and sister to Sir Edward Mansel, Bart., 
late of Muddlescombe, in Caimarthenshire. Your name, Anthony, was given you at 
your baptism by your godfather and great-uncle, Bussy Mansel, Esq., late of Britton 
Ferry, in Co. Glamorgan, in memory of your stout and loyal grandfather, Sir Anthony 
Mansel, Governor of Ragland Castle, in Monmouthshire, who gloriously lost his life 
in the service of his Royal Master, King Cha;. I. in the bloody and fatal battle fought 
on Newbury plains, in Berkshire, on October 27th, 1644, where the rebels got the day, 
and a cannon ball, with chain shot, took off Sir Anthony's head with the upper part of 
his body, while he was briskly charging and routing the enemy. After that sad disaster 
his horse ran up and down the ranks with the lower ]>art of his dead master's body, 
being fast locked in his war saddle, with terror and affrightment both to friends and 
enemies. "^See "Gentleman's Magazine," 1841.

The following paper mentions the death of Capt. Thos. Maunsell at Gloster, ante 
1646. It appears to have been drawn up by some of the family for the purpose of obtain- 
ing opinion of counsel respecting Lowcsmore Farm, Co. Gloster, which was sequestrated 
in consequence of Thomas Halsewood, husband of Dorothy, relict of Richard Maunsell, 
being in arms against the Parliament. The Maunsclls were in possession of it four years 
after, for Mrs. Aphra, and her sons, gave receipts for sums of money paid to them out 
of the Lowesmore rents. 

"The cas3 concerning Lowesmore Farm, being a lease about twenty years yet to 
come, 1646." 

"John Maunsell, of Thorpe Malsor, in Co. Northants, being possessed of Lowesmore 
Farm, in Co. Gloster, sold the same to Richard Maunsell, of the Middle Temple, Esq., 
his uncle, who took for his assurance a covenant for the said John Maunsell to convey 
it to whom he should nominate by his last will and testament or other declaration in 
writmg. " 

1631. Richard Maunsell, by a declaration in writing in nature of a will, gave Lose- 
more Farm to Dorothy, his wife, for life. And he willed that, after her decease, the 
children of the said John Maunsell, of Thorpe Malsor, and of Thomas Maunsell, his 
brother, m Ireland, should have every one ten pounds out of the first rents, and that 
Susan, the wife of John Maunsell, should have ^20 per annum. The rest to be divided 
between Robert ]\Iaunsell, the son of John, and one of the sons of his brother, Thomas 
Maunsell, and by him to be nominated to be a student in the Middle Temple. Shortly 
after the said Richard Maunsell died. 

John Maunsell took letters of administration, and conveyed the estates in trust to 
perform the said declaration. 

1638. The said Dorothy, widow of Richard Maunsell, married Thos. Haslewood, of 
Bel ton, in the Co. of Rutland, Esq., who enjoyed the estate untU it was sequestrated by 
the Committee of Gloucester, he being a recusant in arms against the Parliament. He 
coming in to submit, and make his composition, was committed a prisoner to Leycester, 
where he now remains. 

Thomas Maunsell died at Gloucester, and, before his death, nominated John Maunsell, 
his son, now Lieutenant to Major Babington, to have the moiety of Losemore. 

Query. — What remedy is in this case by address to the Parliament for the above- 


mentioned Dorothy, Haslewood being a lecusant, but hath lived in the Parliament 
Quaiters, and is impoverished by her husband's delinquency.

there for some days after the battle of Worcester, A.D. 1651, when, accompanied by 
Lord Wilmot and Colonel Gunter, he came to Lewes on his way to the coast. Mansell 
arranged with the master of a vessel, that lay at Shoreham, to convey the King to France, 
but did not reveal the name. During conversation at the dinner table the ship master 
suddenly called Mansell aside and expostulated with him for recommending the King 
instead of some person pretended. — See Horsefield's "Hist, of Lewes," vol. i., p. 201. 
Mansell subsequently held a pension of ;£2oo p. a. from King Charles II. for lives of

(75) Henry de Newburgh, alias Beaumont, alias de Bello Monte, Earl of Warwick, 
assisted by the Knights de Braose, Scurlage, de Penrice, de la Mare, etc., conquered the 
peninsula of Gower. He held the chief seigniory of Swansea, and the others received 
from him large estates in Gower by the service of one knight's fee. They each erected 
fortified castles. Oxwich Castle appears to have been built by John de Braose, of 
Llandinas, brother of William, Lord of Gower. His granddaughter and heiress, Agnes, 
married Robert de la Mare. They are said to have been drowned in Oxwich Bay, and 
a handsome monument was erected to their memoiy in Oxwich Church. It is in an arched 
recess on the north side of the chancel, surmounted by a highly enriched canopy of 
freestone. The figures are recumbent, and represent a knight and his lady, the former 
clad in armour of mixed mail and plate., and the latter in the flowing robes and loose 
falling sleeves, with cuff^s and collar of the period. There is no name nor date, but 
from time immemorial the niche has been known as "Doolamuir's Hole." The lady being 
placed on the right of her husband, it is supposed, by good authorities, that this unusual 
position indicates that she was an heiress. Their daughter and heiress married Sir 
Robert Penrice, of Penrice Castle, whose son. Sir John de Penrice, had an only child 
and heiress, Isabel, who married Sir Hugh Maunsell. An old gateway at Oxwich Castle 
is surmounted wth a quartered shield bearing the Maunsell, Penrice, and Scurlage arms, 
namely, in the ist and 4th Maunsell, and in the 2nd and 3rd Penrice and Scurlage 
respectively. The present Oxwich Castle, contiguous to, or upon site of, the more ancient 
one, was built by Sir Rice Mansell, Knt., temp. Henry VIII. 

In 1557, owing to a dispute about the possession of a French vessel, cargo, and 
prisoners, etc., wrecked in the bay. Sir George Herbert attacked the castle during the 
absence of its owner. L^pon his making a demand for admission, Sir Rice's son, Edward, 
sent answer to ihe effect that "he should not come into his father's house to ryfell ther, 
and he woulde rather dye in the gates than he sholde enter with force ther." During the 
melee that ensued Edward was wounded in the arm, and his aunt, Mrs. Anne INIaunsell, 
of, was killed by the blow of a stone thrown by one of Herbert's retainers. 
For this attack Sir George, and his accomplices, were arrested. They were tried before 
the "Star Chamber," and, being found guilt)', were imprisoned in the Flete. 

(76) Penrice Castle is also said to have been one of the castles built by Henry de 
Newburgh, Earl pf Watwick. The lordship of it was given to the Penrice family. As 
above related. Sir Robert de Penrice, married Agnes, dau. and heir of Sir Robert de la 
Mare, of Oxwich Castle. Their descendant. Sir Robert Penrice, was Commissioner of 
.A.rray in 1322, shortly before the decisive battle of Boroughbridge ; and in 1326 he was 
commissioned to raise forces on behalf of Edward II. in Gower, Nedesland, and Kilvey. 
The castle remained in possession of the family until close of the fourteenth century, 
when it passed to the Maunsells by the marriage of Isabella de Penrice with Sir Hugh 

(77) In 1461 Owen Tudor (who had married Queen Catherine, mother of Henry VI.), 
with Jasper Eari of Pembroke, James Earl of Ormond, Philip Mansell, and a great 
number of Welsh and Irishmen, gave battle to Edward Earl of March (afterwards Edward 
IV.) at Mortimer's Cross, in Wales. Being defeated, many of them were taken prisoners 


and beheaded. William of Worcester in his "Itinerary," p. 327, says: "Philip Mansell, 
armiger, was arrested and beheaded, with Hopkyn ap Rees, another Gower gentleman." 
The battle took place in February, 1461, and yet tliere is a doctiment amongst the 
Penrice MSS., dated 3rd April of that year, signed and sealed by Philip Maunsell at 
Oxwich Castle. This would prove that he could not have been beheaded at. the date 
stated. A writ of attainder did not issue against hira until 3rd Edward IV., and his 
estates were confiscated and granted to Sir Roger Vaughan, Knt. , fifth Ed. IV. He 
fought throughout for the Lancastrian party. At the battle of Tewkesbury he was taken 
prisoner by Sir John Conyers, and was soon afterwards beheaded. On the overthrow of 
the Yorkists, and on the accession of Henry VII. in 1485, the attainder was repealed, 
and Jenkyn Mansell, surnamed "Dewr, " or the valiant, became Lord of Oxwich. See 
Patent Rolls and Penrice MSS. 

Some authorities state that Jenkyn Mansell was beheaded at Chepstow, after 
Buckingham's rebellion, in 14S3, but as Morgan IMauncell passed a bond to him dated 3rd 
July, 14S6, and that his eldest son, Rhys, was born 25th January, 1487, it will at once 
appear evident that he could not have been beheaded in 1483. In the Gower pedigrees by 
Mr. G. T. Clark, F.S.A., and repeated by the Revd. J. D. Davies in his book on the 
Gower parishes, it is stated that, "Jenkyn Mansel, Esq., son of Philip Mansel and 
Mabella, his wife, married Edith, daughter of Sir Geo. Kyne, or Kene, Knt., by Cecil, 
daughter of King Edward IV., and widow of James, Prince of Scotland." This cannot 
bo correct, for as Cecil was born in 146S, she could not have been grandmother to 
Sir Rees Mansel who was born in 1487. See Inquisition held at Swansea, in April, 1510, 
as to Sir Rees' age. 

(78) In 1585, a grant was made to Philip iMaunscU, Henry Maunsell, and Charles 
Maunsell, of the rectory and church of Llanrhidian and Penrice, the lordship and Manor 
of Millwood in Gowerland, parcel of the possession of the late Preceptory of Slebech, Co. 
Pembroke, of the late Priory of St. John of Jerusalem in England, etc. 

(79) .Amongst the Penrice MSS. is a Maunsell pedigree compiled in 1603 by Rafe 
Brooke, York Herald. It is on vellum, measures 8 feet 6 inches long by 3 feet 6 inches 
wide, and is illustrated with 231 shields of arms exquisitely drawn and coloured. In this 
the Penrice arms are given as — Per pale indented argent and gules ; and the de la Mare 
arms — Gules two lions passant gardant argent collared azure.

(88) "Colonel John Mansel, C.B.. of Smedmore, Co. Dorset, entered the British 
army as ensign in the 53rd Regiment. He embarked in 1795 for the West Indies, and 
sailed in that ill-fated fleet commanded by Sir H. Christian. He was present in the 
attack on Morne Chabot ; at the siege of Morne Fortunee, in the island of St. Lucie ; 
the whole of the Carib war in St. Vincent; at the capture of Trinidad; and at the siege 
of i\Ioro Castle, in the island of Porto Rico. In 1805 he was promoted to a majority 
without puichase. In 1807 he joined the first battalion 53rd Regiment in Bengal. In 
1809-10, in consequence of disturbances in Madras, his regiment formed part of an 
expedition under Colonel Martindell (Bengal army). In August, 1811, he joined the 
second battalion in Spain ; he was selected to command all the light companies of the 
sixth division during the campaigns of 1811-12, which included the skirmish with the 
enemy's cavalry near Carpio, when Major-General Anson's brigade of cavalry was 
attacked by superior numbers and forced to retreat. At this juncture, the light troops 
under Mansel's command succeeded in gaining the rear of the enemy, killing and 
capturing men and horses. He was present at the sieges of Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajos, 
the forts of Salamanca, and at the battle of Salamanca. In this memorable conflict the 
command of the regiment devolved upon him, and for it he received the gold war medal, 
and was promoted to the rank of Brevet-Lieutenant-Colonel. During this action his 
horse was killed under him. He commanded a brigade of the sixth division during the 
pursuit of the enemy to Arevola. He then returned to his regiment, and remained in 
command of it until the arrival of the army before Burgos. In 1813, he led the second 
provisional battalion, composed of four companies of the Queen's and four of the 53rd 
Regiment, during the operations on the Garonne, and in the general action at Toulouse, 
for which he received a clasp. He headed a brigade in the fourth division at Eaux for 
a considerable time, and on the march to Bordeaux the command of the whole division 
devolved upon him. The second battalion 53rd Regiment having been selected to 
accompany Napoleon to St. Helena, Lieutenant-Colonel Mansel took the command of it 
on the promotion of his brother-in-law. Sir George Bingham, K.C.B., to the brevet rank 
of General. He was made Companion of the Bath at the institution of that order, and 
retired from the service in 1827."

(100) The family of Clavell, or Clavyle, can boast of an antiquity not to be equalled in this 
(Dorset) and very rarely in any other County. They have resided and had possessions in Dorset 
almost ever since the Conquest. In Domesday Book Walterus de Clavile, or Glanvile, held 
Alveronetune, Cnolle, Holne, Cume, Mordune. The Exeter Domesday Book calls him 
de Clayhilla. In the Black Book at the Exchequer Radulphus Calvell, (f. Clavile), held a 
Knight's fee of Alured de Lincoln. 

John Kypston, rector of Penbrugg, Co. Hereford, quits claim to John Sperhauk, parson of 
the Holy Trinity in Wareham, &c,, to the lands called Smedmore, which he had by feoffment of 
Wm. Wyott, senr., of Parva Kymerich. 

Smedmore lies a mile from Great Kimmeridge, and seems to be the Metmore of Domesday 
Book, when it was held by Richard of William de Braiose. 

Joan, dau. and heir of Wm. Wyott, by Agnes his wife, dau. and heir of John Estoke, alias 
Middlestreet, married John Clavyle. By her Barnston, West Orchard, Smedmore, and Baltington 
came into the family. 

I. Ed. IV. (1461). John Clavyle and Joan his wife, granted the Manor of Barnston for life 
to Christian, late wife of John Clavyle, their son and heir-apparent, who died in his father's 

II. Ed. IV. Joan, late wife of John Clavyle, granted Smedmore to her son Thomas for life. 
XXII. Ed. IV. William, son and heir of John Clavyle of Barnston, lets to farm to Thomas 

his uncle, lands in Smedmore for 60 years, paying yearly 13s. 4d., and half a pound of pepper. 

From this William descended John Clavell of Barnston (whose daughter and heiress, Grace, 
married Wm. Knoyle of Samford Orcas. See page 104). John Clavell's monument is in Church 
KnoUe, Co. Dorset, and is described as follows : — 

In the North Aisle against the East Wall is an old altar monument of Pnrbeck marble, with a 
canopy supported by four fluted pillars, under which, in three compartments, are, first, the 
portraiture of an old gentleman in armour, bareheaded, kneeling at a desk, his hands uplifted, a 
sword by his side, and on the desk an open book. On the ground, near him, are his helmet and 
gauntlets. Under him is the following inscription in old English characters — 
" The figure of John Clavell Esquire 
Housband of these two wives 

On an escutcheon, over his head, — 1 and 4 vaire, a chief; 2 and 3. six escallops, 3, 2, and I. 
Crest — A stag's head cabossed, sideways ; between the horns an image with a mitre or cope, 
and somewhat like an arrow-head on the neck. 

Second — On the right hand, a lady kneeling at a desk ; on which is a book open ; her hands 


lifted up ; behind lier three boys, and one girl, kueeliug, with their hands hfted up. On an 
escutcheon, over her head, i and 4 vaire, a chief; 2 and 3 six escallops, impaling ten roundels, 
4, 3, 2, and I. (Gifford of Ichell). 

Third — On the left hand, a lady in same posture alone, on an escutcheon, over her head, 
I and 4 Clavel; 2 and 3 six escallops, impaling Coker, Under her appears the following 
inscription: — 

" The figure of Mistris Susan, wife to the aforesaid John, daughter of Robert Coker, 
of Maupowder in the County Dorset, Esquire. Made A. MCCCCCLXXII." 

All the figures and inscriptions are on brass plates inserted in the marble. 

(See Hutchins' " Hist, of Dorset.") 
Smedmore is now owned by the Mansels of Dorset, having been inherited by them from 
the Clavells through the Richards and Pleydell families. (See pages 31, 43 and 104.) 

(loi.) William Ware of Farnalogh (see page 30, ob. 1730). He was son of John Ware of 
Moortown, by Rebecca, daughter of Walter Tregellin of Ballinadee, and married, in 171 3, Charity, 
daughter of Thomas Owgan, all of Co. Cork. 

(102.) Lieut. Mansell, R.N., son of the late Walter Mansell, Esq., of Woodbury House, Co. 
Oxford, married, first, in 1S30, Phillis, only dan. of Joseph Horsford, Esq., of Weymouth ; 
secondly, in 1836, Susanna Maria, only daughter of John Surman, Esq., of the Lodge, Malvern, 
Worcester. When Midshipman of the Morgiana sloop, serving on the coast of Africa, he, on 
the loth of December, 1S19, had command of the gig, and assisted at the capture, by boarding, 
in open day, of the Spanish armed slave-schooner " Esperan^a," of greatly superior force. On 
that occasion, Mr. Mansell, followed by a marine named Lord, was the first on the enemy's deck. 
For the space of two minutes he and his brave companion, from unavoidable circumstances, 
were left unsupported in the presence of very fearful odds, but they made ample use of their 
time, the former attacking, wounding and overcoming the captain of the slaver, and another 
|)erson ; and the marine killing the man at the wheel. The loss of the assailed in the affair 
amounted altogether to two men killed and six wounded; that of the British to three slightly 
wounded. Among the latter was Mansell, who had been previously severely bruised by cold 
shot thrown into the boats with a view of sinking them during their approach. 

In consideration of his gallant behaviour on the occasion he was so strongly recommended 
in the despatches to the Admiralty, and his claim to promotion so warmly pressed by Mr. 
Wilberforce, that on 14th September, 1821, he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. 

(See O'Byrne's "Naval Biogi. Dicty/'page 721). 

(103) I Henry V. Thomas Boyvyle, of Tirlyngton, Co. Leicester, and Joan, late wife of 
Wm. Chetwynd, sued Robert Evyngton and others for land in Tirlyngton, which John le Maunsell, 
their kinsman, and whose heirs they were, had given to Saer Harecourt in frank marriage with 
Isabella, his daughter ; and which should revert to them — Saer and Isabella having left no issue. 

John le Maunsell had a son John, whose son John had a son Robert, who had two daughters, 
viz. : Joan and Margaret. Joan, one of the plaintiffs, married Wm. Chetwynd. Margaret 
married — Boyville, and had a son, Thomas Boyville, the second plaintiff. 

6 Henry V. John Mauntell, Northampton, and Elizabeth, his wife, sued Ralph Paries, and 
Alice, his wife, for lands and rents in Stokebruere, which William de Hareweden gave to 
Robert de Hareweden for his life, with remainder to Robert, son of Henry de Hareweden, and 
the heirs of his body.

(104) 2 Richard III. (1484). Thomas Mansell, Esquire, had a permit to go over to Guernsey 
with two men in his train (Harl MSS., No. 433, fol. 212). In 1568 John Mancel, '^des parties de 


Normandie," settled in the Island. He was probably a Huguenot refugee. As recorded on 
page 157 Wm. Mansell, of Weymouth, also settled ip Guernsey in reign of Charles U. 

(105) James Perchard Mansell entered the H. E. I. C. Navy, about the year 1796, and in 
1800 while serving in the "Kent," Captain Revington, was captured, after a most severe action 
off the Sand Heads, in the Bay of Bengal, by the French frigate, "Revenante," commanded by 
Surcouf. Captain Revington was killed and several of his crew. He afterwards served in the 
" Monarch,'' the " Henry Addington," etc., and in 1811, while in command of the " Coldstream," 
died of fever caught from exposure while rescuing a drunken seaman from a watery grave. He 
was buried off Point de Galle, in Ceylon, 

(106) William M. Mansell, Captain Royal Marines, was present in the engagement with 
pirates at Borneo and defeat of their forces and destruction of their stockades in Malloodoo Bay 
in 1845. He served in the China expedition of 1857-58, including the operations at Canton, with 
the storming and capture of the city. (Medal and clasp,") 

(107) George Hope Mansell entered the Navy 1841. Served in the Pacific during the 
Russian War of 1854-1855, and was present in the "Pique" 40, at the unsuccessful attack on 
Prtropaulovski, 4th September, 1854. In his despatch describing the attack. Captain Sir 
Frederick W. E. Nicolson, Bart., of the "Pique," said "Lieutenants Bland and Mansell of this 
ship, commanded the ' Pique's ' seamen on shore, and were among the last to leave the beach." 
The " Pique's" casualities were thirty-nine in killed, missing, and wounded. He served also on 
board the "Calcutta" 84, and the "Nankin" 50, during the hostilities in China, from 1856 to 
1858, and received the Chinese medal. 

(108) John Mansell entered the Hon. E. I. C. Navy in 1798, and served that year in the 
"Osterly," Captain Piercey, which, in the Bay of Bengal, was suddenly attacked by the French 
frigate " La Forte '' 56, and only captured after a most determined resistance of forty-seven 
minutes, during which Captain Piercey, and twenty others, were severely wounded, and thirteen 
of the crew killed. " La Forte " was shortly after this herself captured while securing her prize, 
by the "Sibylle," Captain Cook, and the prisoners released. The H. E. I. C. handsomely 
rewarded Captain Piercey, and all the officers received promotion. John Mansell afterwards 
served in the " Dover Castle," and was employed in the expedition against Macao, in China. 
He served in 1803 in the " Princess Charlotte," and again had to encounter a vastly superior force 
of three French frigates, the " Marengo " 80, " Atalanta " 50, and the " Surveillante " 56, in the 
Bay of Vizigoptam, but of course without success. On their arrival at the He de France, John 
Mansell was the first officer released on parole by Admiral Linois, and he returned to Europe in 
1805. A few months later he married. He was offered the command of the "Coldstream," 
which, on his declining it from ill-health, the H. Directors were pleased to confer on his brother, 
James Perchard Mansell. 

('109) William Mansell, F.C.S., M.D,, Surgeon H. E. I. C, arrived in India in 1801, and 
after a continuous residence there of above twenty-three years, returned to Europe in 1825. 
He served under Lord Lake during the Mahratta Wars of 1803-4-5-6, when he was present at 
many battles and sieges, among the former at Lasswarree, November ist, 1803, when Generals 
Ware, and Vandeleur were killed, and at Deig, November i2fh, 1804, when General Eraser was 
killed. Among the latter, at the siege and capture by storm, October 17th, J803, of the fortress 
of Agra ; and at the two unsuccessful storms of Bhurtpore, January, 1805. Dr. Mansell served 
also in various campaigns from 1812 to 1818, and received the war medal with five clasps for 
Lasswarree, battle of Deig, capture of Deig, Seetahbuldee, and Nagpore. 

(no) Bonamy Mansell entered the Navy, 1800, as first-class volunteer, on board the 
"London" 98; midshipman, " Royal George" 100. In 1805 he sailed for the East Indies in the 
"Cornwallis" 50, under Captain C. J. Johnstone, which vessel, on the nth November, 1806, in 


the company of the "Sceptre" 74, made a gallant attack on the " Semillante," French frigate 
three armed ships, and twelve sail of merchantmen, the whole protected by seven batteries 
mounting upwards of one hundred pieces of cannon, in St. Paul's Bay, Isle de Bourbon. 
On board the " Culloden " 74, bearing the flag of Sir Edward Pellew, he witnessed, 
nth December, 1S07, the destruction of the dockyard, and stores at Griessee, in the Island of, 
Java, and of all the men-of-war remaining to Holland in India. On May ist, 1S09, we find him 
as Lieutenant on board the " Sapphire,'' taking part in a successful engagement with two 
batteries near St, Rose, in the Isle de Bourbon. Here he was severely hurt in the leg by the 
premature e.xpiosion of a magazine, containing one hundred barrels of powder, which took place 
while he was in the act of pulHng off from the shore with a message to Captain Corbett. He was 
subsequently concerned in the capture of the French frigate, " Caroline," and other vessels in 
St. Paul's Bay. During 1812, B. Mansell, at that time in the "Helder" 36, succeeded, in the 
presence of a convoy of three hundred sail, in setting fire at noonday to a galliot defended on the 
beacli in the Great Belt by a sharp fire from three or four field pieces and musketry — an enter- 
prise which occasioned tlie boats under his orders a loss of two midshipmen and of at least ten 
or twelve men killed and wounded. He had also tlie good fortune, in a boat of the same ship, 
in conjunction with another belonging to the "Bellette," to effect the capture of a valuable 
mercliantman laden with linen, which afterwards sold for ^11,000. He was promoted commander 
gth April, 1847. 

(in) Captain Robert Charles Maunsell, R.N., C.B. (see page 81), entered the Navy in 1799, as 
first-class vol. on board the " Mermaid " 32, under his near relative Captain (afterwards Admiral) 
Robert Dudley Oliver, fitting for the Mediterranean. He attained the rating of Midshipman in 
1800. He was removed in 1801 to the " Maidstone" 32, and continued most actively employed 
luitil the end of 1804. During that period it was his fortune to be made a participator in many 
cutting-out affairs, but particularly on i ith July, 1804, when, holding therating of master's mate, 
he served with the boats of the "Maidstone," "Narcissus," and "Seahorse," 10 in number, 
under the orders of Lieutenant John Thompson, and assisted at the capture of 12 settees, lying 
at La Vandour, in the Bay of Hieres. In this conflict they encountered a tremendous fire of 
grape-shot and musketry from the vessels, as well as from a battery and the houses of the town, 
sustaining a loss of 4 men killed and 23 wounded. Maunsell was severely wounded in this 
affair, and in consideration of the injury he received, the Patriotic Society voted him a gratuity. 
So great were the coolness and perseverance developed on the occasion by him, that on 7th 
March, 1805, he was promoted to a Lieutenancy in the " Princess Royal," attached to the Channel 
fleet. He was ne.\t appointed in 1807 to the " Blanche" 28, on the East India station, and soon 
after his arrival he had the satisfaction of being advanced, by a commission dated 15th 
February, 1808, to the command of the " Procris " 18. Among the numerous prizes made by 
Capt. Maunsell in this sloop, may be included the capture, in 1809, of the Dutch Company's brig 
" Wagsted.' of 8 guns, 4 swivels, and 86 men (vide Gazette, i8ro, p. 388). On the morning of 
31st July, 181 1, being off the mouth of the Indramarga River, coast of Java, he took personal 
command of the boats of the " Procris," together with the two flat-boats, carrying an officer and 
20 men of H.M.'s 14th Regt., and an officer and the same number of men from H.M.'s 89th Regt. 
With a degree of skill and ability that called forth the after thanks of Commodore Broughton, he 
led them ashore to the attack of si.^c of the enemy's gunboats, each mounting i brass 32-pounder, 
carronade forward, and i iS-pounder aft, both on pivots, with a crew of more tlian 60 men, and 
in convoy of over 40 proas. Although the latter contrived to escape by hauling through the mud 
up the river, yet five of the armed vessels vi'ere irresistibly boarded and carried, and the 
remaining one destroyed, this too, with a loss of only 1 1 men wounded, notwithstanding that the 
enemy, in addition to the fire of their guns, kept up a constant discharge of musketry (see 
Gazette, 181 1, p.p. 2409-n). As a revvard/or his meritorious conduct in achieving so gallant an 


exploit, Capt. Maunsell was almost immediately placed in acting-command of the "Illustrious" 74, 
bearing the Commodore's broad pendant. Prior to the above event he had been ordered to take 
charge of a transport with 400 troops in the Sunda Strait, for purpose of joining the e.xpedition, 
then daily expected off Batavia. Owing to the reluctance felt by the master of the transport to 
run during the night, Capt. Maunsell took the whole 400 men on board his own vessel, and, by 
his promptitude, was thus enabled to reach the destination two days previous to the debarkation, 
whereas the transport did not arrive until nearly a month afterwards. 

During his two months command of the " Illustrious,'' he served on sliore throughout all the 
operations which terminated in the fall of Java. Here he enacted a distinguished part, on shore, 
at the head of a body of seamen, and ended in the bombardment and storming of Fort Cornells, 
26th August, iSii (vide Gazette 181 1, p. 2404). During these operations young Richard 
Maunsell, son of William Maunsell, of Castle Park, was killed (see page 72), and Capt. Maunsell, 
in sympathetically announcing the sad news to the lad's family, said, " he fought like a lion, and 
died like a lamb." 

On the night of loth of the ensuing month, Capt. Maunsell, having a division of boats under 
his orders in the neighbourhood of Samarang, took captive a large sloop rigged gunboat, 
mounting 4 heavy guns and 2 brass swivels, a Malayrigged gunboat carrying i i2-pounder 
carronade, and a despatch boat. 

On 7th February, 1812, he was confirmed in Post-rank, and in the following August was 
appointed to the " Chatham" 74, bearing the flag in the North Sea of Rear-Admiral Matthew H. 
Y. Scott. 

In February, 1831, he was placed in command of the "Alfred" 50, and sent to the 
Mediterranean, where he witnessed the establishment of King Otho on the throne of Greece, and 
was selected to watch the movements of the hostile fleets of Turkey and Egypt. His last 
appointment afloat was, 13th May, 1840, to tlie "Rodney" 92. On his arrival in that ship off 
Alexandria, he was instructed by Commodore Napier to open a direct communication between 
the Commodore and Mehemet Ali. Accordingly, landing close to his Highness's palace, he 
managed to pass the guards unmolested, and entering the presence chamber, without intro- 
duction, had the good fortune to obtain a very flattering audience, and fully to carry out the 
object of his mission. Next day he landed with the Commodore, and remained until the 
conclusion of the celebrated convention between that dignitary and the Egyptian potentate. 

In November, 1S42, the " Rodney " was the means of rescuing the " Formidable " 84, when 
that vessel was on shore near Barcelona ; and in the ensuing month she was present at the 
leduction of that city by the force under Espartero. In the spring of 1843 she was despatched 
to the Cape of Good Hope with the 7th Dragoon Guards, a company of the 45th Regt,, another 
of Artillery, and 150 men. In October, 1843, she was paid off. 

On 20th July, 1838, Capt. Maunsell was nominated a C.B., and in April, 1844, Sir Robert 
Peel spontaneously appointed him a Commissioner of Greenwich Hospital, as a tribute to 
" his high personal character, and his eminent professional service."
